Yes, when I saw that the old name was being used, I figured someone must be caching it somewhere. Since I didn't know which processes or how many, I took the easy way out and rebooted. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to have changed the situation -- it looks like the old name must be stored in a file somewhere that the daemons are reading.
